actually save the country right now. steve benen is the man to be credited with this proposal, we'll be talking about this with steve in a moment. but the idea is this, it's genius, right now we are at risk of a double-dip recession, things going on globally in the economy are really, really hurting us. there's both an urgent, urgent need to create jobs quickly, to put jumper cables on the dead battery of the economy, and republicans are saying they will not let that happen. they don't want government action to stimulate the economy. nothing government can do to create jobs, so here's the pitch. have the white house take the several hundred letters republican lawmakers have sent to the executive branch from 2009 asking for investments to create jobs and let president obama announce he'll gladly fund all the republicans' request that have not been filled. michele bachmann, we know you say you hate the stimulus, we know you hate the idea of government doing anything like the stimulus act to create jobs, but remember when you wrote to the transportation department back in 2009 asking
promising candidacies. at state fair in des moines tonight a longtime conservative activist steve and our chief political correspondent, candy crowley. candy, i want to start with you and, yes, i want to start with the not so surprised visit i will call of sarah palin. she section, oh, shucks, go pay attention to the others but she was clearly, clearly tried to say, i'm still here. >> reporter: yes. and, as a matter of fact, a long time observer of iowa, he knows a few things about iowa politics and he said listen, i think she's going to get in. i mean, why else would you show up here? i'd only say to that, because right now sarah palin's job basically is, you know, speeches and raising money for her pact and staying visible certainly helps that. but she gives out all of the signals that she's going to run and that she sure is thinking about it. i think most of the betting is that she won't but she likes to leave that door open for a lot of reasons, i think. >> steve scheffler i know that you were watching last night and one of the big dynamics is the minnesota governor tim pawlenty needs
a crowd here. let's bring in our panel. steve hayes . karen. national political correspondant for the washington post and jeff with the new york times. they are all up the road in ames and we are here in the iowitate fair. teave, first to you. thoughts about the debate and how it affects the brand picture and this race? >> i thought it was a good debate and lots of interesting exchanges and revealed what the candidate hope to do with the debate going into the straw poll. tim pawlenty takog michelle bachmann and she returned fire. rick sanatorium expressing himself . newt gingrich to arise from the slumber that he's been in . i think you have a bunch of candidates doing a lott of things and giving an energiic push going into the traw poll. what you didn't have is much much a vision. there was not a big moment for any of the candidates where voters sitting at home would say yes, that is my guy or woman. this is why i am a conservative or a republican. nothing that expressed a broader vision of republican governorinance in the way republicans are hungaring for. >> karen, your tho

and steve hayes from the weekly standard. let me take you behind the scenes. we had to pretape that interview with michelle bachmann and while it was running we found out big new campaign and that is tim pawlenty former governor of minnesota and a serious contender has decided to drop out of the campaign. he pent more than 45 days in iowa and hundred campaign appearances and finished a weak third in the iowa straw poll and in lesss than 12 hours he's out. bret, are you surprised? >> no, they put their eggs in the ames straw poll basket. because of apes, there was not enough fuel in the car to keep going down the road. i saw governor pawlenty huddled with his advisors. it was not a happy moment for them. i didn't want to go up and interrupt and ask them questions, but they came to the conclusion they couldn't go back to donors and say this is a reality. after that showing and he got fewer votes than sam brown bag now kansas governor did when he dropped out four and half years ago. it was a tough day for governor pawlenty. >> chairman strawn, pawlenty, we thought he had the big b
now for the weather. steve villanueva is in for sam this morning. hey, steve. >> hey, guys. good morning, everyone. we'll start in texas this morning, where it is finally a little bit cooler. yesterday in dallas, we were only in the 90s for the first time in 40 days. we were not in the triple digits thanks to some thunderstorms. more in the forecast. great news because you desperately needed the rain. and in new england, back towards chicago a very comfortable start to the day heading into the 80s later with lots of sunshine. all right, everyone. that is your national forecast. that's your weather, everyone. elizabeth? >> all right, steve. thanks so much. >>> now, a spoiler alert. you might actually enjoy a story more if you know how it ends before you begin. at least that's what a new study is saying. abc's david wright takes a look on this new twist on storytelling. >> reporter: these researchers insist knowing how everything turns out doesn't spoil the fun. it actually makes things better. for "good morning america" -- hang on a sec. it actually makes things better. really? th
congressman steve king, and analysis of neal king of the wall street journal. >>> good morning -- >> once again, former governor, tim pawlenty, is pulling out of the race. he will no longer be a republican candidate for president. this after placing third in the iowa poll yesterday. we want to bring in our peter hamby, a political correspondent for us. what led to this? was it third place? >> absolutely a third place finish. his staff privately in the weeks running up to the straw poll knew they needed a first or strong second place finish to prove to the donors and supporters that their campaign was not stalled, and he was myered in single digits. late last night pawlenty organized a conference call with supporters, and staff, and that call happened this morning and i am told by a source on the call, he will later today announce the end of his campaign, and he told his staff, quote, we needed a boost from aims that did not happen." that's the word this morning, and unfortunately pawlenty was not able to gain traction in iowa. he joined the race 150 days ago and michele bachmann jumped in
's steve handelsman reports. >> reporter: in his first reaction since standard & poor's downgraded u.s. bonds late friday, president obama rejected the double-a plus rating. >> no matter what some agency may say, we've always been and always will be a triple-a country. >> reporter: u.s. stock markets dropped sickeningly. the dow losing 5.55%. the s&p 500, 6.66%. the nasdaq off 6.9%, the biggest drop in years. gold was up to an all-time high, $1,700, a sign investors are scared. by last week's debt ceiling deal, not big or bold enough. >> no one touched entitlement spending or tax reform. until republicans and democrats show an ounce of backbone and actually do what's in the interest of the american people rather than what's in their own immediate political interest, i can't argue with s&p's conclusion. >> reporter: the president said the downgrade could spur on new debt talks. >> our problems are imminently solvable, and we know what we have to do to solve them. >> reporter: that, in turn, pleased the head of standard & poor's. >> it was actually a bit of a new sense of urgency we he
republican party and steve hayes from the weekly standard. let me take you behind the scenes a little bit. we had to pretape the interview with michele bachmann about an hour ago and while it was running we found out some big news in this campaign and that is that tim pawlenty, the former governor of minnesota a guy who was a serious contender when the race started has decided to drop out of the campaign. he spent more than 4 45 days in iowa. more than 100 campaign appearances. finished a weak third in the iowa straw poll and within 12 hours he is out. bret, surprised? >> no, they put a lot of their eggs in the ames straw poll basket and this morning i'm told he said that because of ames there was not enough fuel in the car to keep going down the road. i saw governor pawlenty at the hotel this morning huddled with his advisors. it was a not a happy moment for them. i didn't want to go up and interrupt and ask questions. but i think they came to the conclusion that they couldn't go back to their donors and say this is a reality. after that showing, and he got fewer votes than sam brownback did
and herman cain. then the view from an influential iowa conservative, congressman steve king, and analysis with philip rucker of "the washington post" and neil king of "the wall street journal." i'm candy crowley in ames, iowa, and this is "state of the union." the big story this morning, former minnesota governor tim pawlenty drops out from his presidential bid. he told his staff on a conference call and then spoke on abc's "this week." >> it's been a great honor for mary and me and our team to convey the message of trying to get this country back on track, and i think it is off track, but bringing my record forward as a two-term governor of a blue state, doing things like getting government spending under control, doing health care reform the right way and much more. obviously that message didn't get the kind of traction or lift we needed or hoped for coming out of the ames straw poll. we needed to get some lift and continue on and have a pathway forward. that didn't happen, so i'm announcing this morning on your show that i'm going to be ending my campaign for president. but i'm very, v
the straw poll. steve brown is in ames, iowa with more on this, steve. >> yes, good morning, juliet, clayton and mike. over 16,000 folks came here, a pretty good turnout for the straw poll and there she is, michele bachmann on top of the his. how close ron paul got with far less buzz and far less participation here in iowa, directly himself. but, michele bachmann is the story, quite clearly coming out of the straw poll. she's the winner and not been in the campaign the longest and gotten it done through a lot of help here on the ground from iowans and last night after her victory, she wanted to thank her supporters. >> we love you. >> thank you, everyone. we love you, god bless you. god bless america. now it's on to all 50 states, god bless you everyone. >> now, if you're looking for a second tri story perhaps it belongs to rick santorum, a guy in the low single digit polls here in iowa and nationally and popped up to fourth, a really impressive showing given he has a little campaign money, but instead of money he invested the other valuable thing that he has, which is time. doing over 90 ca

, at the state fair, steve and our chief political correspondent, candy crowley. candy, i want to start with you and, yes, i want to start with the not so surprised visit i will call of sarah palin. she section, oh, shucks, go pay attention to the others but she was clearly trying to say, i'm still here? >> reporter: yes. as a matter of fact, a long time observer of iowa, he knows a few things about iowa politics and he said listen, i think she's going to get in. why else would you show up here? i would only say to that because right now sarah palin's job is speeches and raises money for her pact say staying visible certainly helps that. i think most of the betting is that she won't. >> i know you were watching last night. one of the big dynamics is that tim pawlenty needs to win iowa and michele bachmann needs to win iowa. i want you to listen to the debate that we'll call "minnesota spice". >> it's an undisputable fact that in congress her record of accomplishment and results is nonexistent. >> governor, when you were governor in minnesota, you i implemented cap and trade and prals pra praised
to blame him for the jobless rate. steve handelsman has the latest. >> how are you, sir? >> reporter: his job could be in jeopardy. president obama came to a county fair in illinois beaten down by the deficit fight you can the downgrade and especially by high unemployment. >> there are some things that we could be doing right now to put our neighbors and our friends, some family members took work. >> reporter: in a september speech after his vacation, the president will lay out a plan to build new schools, bridges and roads. >> and all those folk hose got laid off from construction because the economy went south or the house bubble burst, they are dying for work. >> reporter: obama jobs plan will include extending the payroll tax cuts he pushed through in '09, more infrastructure construction project and help for the long-term unemployed. and he will propose a new deficit reduction plan 4 trillion in cut, not just 1.5 trillion, tax hikes on the well off and entitlement reform. deficit cuts would help pay for jobs programs. sounds good to democrat ann crow. she is unemployed. >> so that's
-runner, but as steve handelsman reports, the man polling second aricht just in time to kick off an annual state institution. >> reporter: day one of the iowa state fair in des moines. lots of stuff to eat and see. like the butter cow. life-size. made of butter. and fried butter. this is fried butter. here at the iowa state fair. and politicians. mitt romney in iowa today. his first visit back here since may. >> good to see you. thanks for being here today. >> reporter: romney has been focusing on fund-raising, and on new hampshire. >> back in iowa, what's the iowa plan, sir? >> good to be here. thank you. work hard and win. >> reporter: it was hard today for the former massachusetts governor. >> hang on a second. hold on a second. i'll let you speak. >> reporter: hecklers gave rockne a warmup for tonight's debate. >> ready for an answer? i'm not going to raise taxes. that's my answer. i'm not going to raise taxes. and if you want somebody that can raise taxes, you can vote for barack obama. >> reporter: other major candidates tonight, michele bachmann, whose breakthrough came at the last debate
this video could easily have gotten caught in the crush. steve mitchell is with musicpicks.net. i understand you were originally supposed to be much closer to this stage. why, first of all, did you move back? >> well, it wasn't my choice. earlier in the day it was changed to a sound board shoot rather than -- rather than a pit shoot. that's kind of common in the industry, last-second changes might occur. fortunately for me it save made life and my fellow photographers. >> help us, steve to make sense of these images that you shot. what was going on in those first moments after the collapse? i mean, what was your reaction? >> well, we were standing at the sound board and actually looking down the track, we knew we were going to be hit by severe weather. obviously just expecting heavy rains. coming down, a dusty dirt track, there was something i had never seen before, the -- there was a big dust storm and it -- but it wasn't linear, it was almost circular, something i had never seen before. and actually, that's when it got about 30, 40 yards to us, there were a few photographers that actually
-washington sentiment into political advantage? two obama 2008 veterans are with us, steve, i want to go out to you first. the president is in the midwest. i want to walk over to the map. this one strikes me. watching where he is campaigning today, we talked about this on the program a couple of weeks ago. minnesota, iowa, illinois. he is in these rural areas of the country. it's largely white america, small town america. and the president campaigns all blue states last time, illinois is his home state. probably keep this one blue. these ones you would probably have to be a little questionable, especially iowa has been a swing state. 2008 he splits the white vote. 2011 a new pugh center study shows 52% to 39% for the republicans. that what this bus tour is about? trying to reconnect with white voters in small-town rural america? >> well, first off, john, he is not out there campaigning. he is out there as president. this is an official trip. i think it's important that he is out of washington. he'll be a better president the more time he spends outside of that city. i think it's great that he is ou

candidate are using free goodie give aways to pull voters their way. steve broen brown is reporting. >> we're back at the straw polling. you can have in the actual balloting, two kind of winners. this line symbolizes, most common kind. they are standing in line at bachmann tent to get what is called a meat sundae. they put beef on top of mashed potatoes. bachmann tent, it's air-conditioned. they spent a lot of money. there high expectation. it's believed she could win the most votes here. rick santorum, a little more modest display. he could be another kind of winner. santorum spent single digits but because he has worked hard spent a lot of time in iowa there are a lot of folks might punch a ticket for rick san for am. i have seen predictions he could finish as high as fourth which is much higher than he is in standard polling. he could claim a moral victory. santorum you wouldn't expect to do well but he could claim a victory. bachmann picks a win, she could claim a traditional type of victory. we could have two types of victories out of straw poll. >> heather: thank you very much. i lik

, a real fantasy few days. it is the best of politics, the best of iowa, and the best part about it, steve, is temperatures are well below 100. as you know, it can get really humid out here. >> and we'll all remember that in january and february when the caucuses get underway. >> to paraphrase it elvis -- she is in the building. sarah palin is at the state fair as we speak. what is termed motivation? >> it is a great question. i think we are all trying to figure it out. i always thought it was a fool's errand to get into sarah palin's head. she may want to run still. but there is no question she definitely wants to be part of the conversation. she does not want to be forgotten. it could mean a very unconventional candidacy or somebody who wants to be a player in the course of the primaries. >> the straw poll will take place on the campus of iowa state. nine names on the ballot. six actively participating. >> the big question is who shows up. what is the universe? will it be 10,000 people or 20,000 people? four years ago you had 14,000. if it is less than that, i think you have to look for
